Ollie

http://www.skateboard-city.com/Trick-Tips/feet/ollie.png - The ollie is the root of most skateboard tricks. It is the jump of skateboarding. By popping your board and jumping you will get your board a little bit off the ground, then by dragging your front foot up the board to the nose, you will suck the board higher and even it out, to be even with the ground. This is usually the first trick you learn in skateboarding. Most people give up when they can't do it after a week. But if you practice a lot, you will be able to do it.
NOTE: Notice how Drag and Dragging are Bold. This is because it is the most important thing in an Ollie, at least when you're learning.

Place your feet as follows: Back foot on the tail, with your little tow even with the edge of the board, and the front in the middle of your board.

Lean forward? and when you ollie, try to roll your foot up to the nose and lunge forward.

Ok I can ollie pretty high and I'm pretty good at it, but for some reason when I land on my board my back foot lands somewhere above the bolts towards the middle, and when I land and fall forwards. Please help me.

when i ollie my bored either goes behind me (happens most offten) or infront of me (this is when my sholders are square with the board) i usually land it but the board is never pointing the same direction as i started

I think its easier to ollie when your foot is at the tip of your board then all you have to do is literally jump up with your backfoot and drag your front foot up the board then shift your wieght by leaning foreward. When you get that it gets alot easier to do tricks its all just a matter of timing.

try doin some 180's or pop shove its if u can ollie at least 5 inchesor grind some low curbs, for the ollie thing just be sure to drag ur front foot foward and move ur back foot towards the back truck bolts . also try to lean into the drag a little

!Shuv_it_Up!
04-20-2006, 06:04 PM
Yea, all you need to do is either put your front foot maybe just a bit higher than you usually do, slam down, slide up, and jump.

And for the other guy, i dont know what you should do, i usually can ollie alot higher over stuff than normally.

You're the best skater around there and you can't even ollie? I wonder what everyone else looks like....

When you ollie make sure you drag your foot and when you pop it make sure your back foots not in some wierd position, just put it right in the middle of the tail.

THROW YOUR HANDS UP RIGHT WHILE YOUR JUMPING AFTER YOU POP...it gets you like at least 5 extra inches if you have all of the other fundamentals of the ollie down and u can already ollie at least a foot or two.

liger00s
05-12-2006, 05:58 PM
ok


y that happens is b/c u are afraid that u wont ollie high enough and fall.Just pretend that your not olling over anything and u will just pop the board slide your foot and push down and wait till u come down and roll away

Graber
05-13-2006, 02:20 AM
Well i practiced ollie many times i tell u that, i am not afraid to do it i treyed even at a good speed and land it with no problem (no problem 90 degress lol) i think it is easy to do an ollie but for my it is imposible to land a clean ollie.I got this prolem for MANY MONTHS many , i remeber that onece i land it good but... my deck is no that good maybe my sk8 could be a problem do u think i should buy a new deck, what deck it is good for ollie? Well ANY ANY method i use i still do 90 fronstide 90 i am goofy foot right foot in the front. But u see i am not experienced in fackie ollie but if i try and bring the board in the air it doest go 90 why? At fackie ollie 45 degress is max mybe 20 degress sometimes why???

I can ollie over one deck after 3 weeks of practice and do the pop-shuvit. thats fast learning my friend... my best advice to learn to ollie high while moving is to practice it a whole lot! I was at first scared to ollie while moving but all you have to do is to overcome your fear and practice as much as you can. IT HURTS to become better. Dear to fall. My elbows have gotten so smashed a couple of times that I could not lean on the in school. Anyways keep up the good work, lean forward, not to much, and you do not have to pop so hard to fo a high ollie... because then you often land a bit bad and fall of the board. Good luck all new boarders!

05-25-2006, 03:46 AM
Drag at an angle, not straight up, but not too far forward, or the board will fly away.

BKD sk8a
05-25-2006, 02:49 PM
i dont realy know cause im new but i think you need to more sort of kick the tail to pop it up. and when you drag you need to use more of your ankle and not as much the leg.

csca1
05-25-2006, 02:57 PM
ollie is just repetition, all you need to do is to practice sliding up your foot after you pop down on the board

05-25-2006, 03:03 PM

06-06-2006, 01:28 PM
the reason why your board goes forward....and you go backward is becuz u r a fuckin dumass!!!
thankyou
poser!!!!

sk8ermatt23
06-06-2006, 04:55 PM
Learning how to ollie is reallllllllly simple!!!!!!! the only thing u need to know is quick feet movement. u start off at a decent speed(walking speed, or just stay still). one foot at the edge of the tail, and one foot in te middle of the deck( before the first set of bolts). with the foot at the tail, u push down really hard, but still keep ur other foot on. wen ur board is at a vertical position, u slide ur front foot up the board( the higher u slide it up, the higher the ollie! ). And then u just wait till u hit the ground. ollie-ing is the main trick u need to learn to master anytrick. so take my advise and use it well!!!!!

This happens to me but i figured it out
the reson u can ollie as high wen trying to jump over sumthen is becuz u get scared. u think that utr gunna fall forwards of backwards and hurt urself!! just say to urself " im gunna do it!" and ollie as high as u can. email me back if u have sumthen to say>>matt_cormier23@hotmail.com

It took me forever to get this down. One, when you are going make sure you are balanced. Two, when you try to ollie while moving, just relax. I cant stress it enough that every that trick I ever landed for the first time was when i wasn't focusing on it much. If you know how to ollie then just focus on your pop. The rest will feel natural. Hope this helps. Good luck! :)

first, u must know how 2 balance ur board. always ride, do little manuals and doing varial body will help.i sugest try an ollie without moving and try 2 hold something to help u balance. u must pop hard and drag up and hard. the secret is by shifting weight ,gud balance and concentration. when u hir the pop sound, drag hard and put ur backfut up very fast. always practices and never give up. when u got ur first ollie, try it again until ur body will be use 2 e. then try it without holding, then try it when moving slow and then practices it when moving faster, and try ollieing high by poping hard and draging it high. and also, dont be scared to land on it.

aerials929
06-10-2006, 07:10 AM
what i found out is this:
people could ollie better if they practised jumping up a skateboard(when not moving or moving, its ur choice). its not like a body varial just jump up straight n try to bend ur knees as high as possible n land. that could help with the ollies coz my ollies went higher with that kind of practise. if u disagree, do it ur way. but this is wat i did 2 improve ollies

when you are going to ollie set up like you would for a ollie, and then throw down your front foot, dont push down your foot and leave it there, you have do put down the force with a big stomp with your foot and then once you have poped you have to tuck up your legs and drag up with your front foot, but draging up with your drong foot should come natural.

Ok now its really weird. For some reason I am finding it difficult to ollie. I can do its pretty well sometimes, but I just can't get the drag right! And my board always turns when I ollie so I find it difficult to land it.

STeel_kr
06-20-2006, 10:56 PM
what i think the BEST TIP is this :

use the stance skate-city.com is telling u

pop REALLY HARD i mean REALLY REALLY HARD and as soon as u pop drag ur feet to all the end and lift ur back leg when ur dragging really ahrd ur back leg should go closer to the trucks to do a HIGHER ollie

THIS TOOOK me so long to figure out...
fuck and also

like when u drag ur feet should not be vertical it should be like the video when he puts his shoe side to drag..

plz if ur falling skate more dont practice olling to get ur balance or tighten ur trucks or loosen do anything u can so u get good balance do an ollie in a flat ground

Rasputin
06-26-2006, 12:56 PM
well i just want to say that if you try to learn the ollie stationary and then do one while moving. it completly throughs you off so just od a few in the grass or stationary but try to learn it while moving becuase it will help you a lot. I'm still trying to learn it while moing.

keep your backfood parallel with your front foot and adjacent to the board and make sure the ball of ur backfoot is on the tail

i can ollie good in the grass or or on the ground but once i started doing a moving ollie i would allways slip of at the end or lose the board so i tried to find an easyer way and i did. if you always look strait down when doing an ollie try this. look forward and at a slant at what is ahead of you so all you see is the ground and the front tip of your board this will help with your control. tell me if this helps you

Mark V
07-14-2006, 08:08 PM

i've been trying to ollie for about a month and a half now and i've made considerable progress but every time i pop the tail down and jump up i try to drag my foot forward but my board ends up flying away behind me. I think i might be kicking it away instead of actually dragging but i cant get myself to stop doing it. Anyone that can help? I would really appreciate it:)

pop mean kick down hard on your tail and pull your leg back up

try and slide your foot up the board at the same time as you kick the tail and you should go up and level out in mid air

tighten your trucks a bit, or get new bushings. it should stop you from rocking

habitatrider11
08-18-2006, 08:40 AM
i feel like such a noob for asking this. wat do u mean by getting new bushings?

Bushing are the colored part in your trucks the look like rubber.The more you skate on them the more loos they come,but somtimes they come loos and can mak you off balance.If you get new ones you can choose how hard or soft you want them to be. Hope that helped!!!

Sanfer
08-18-2006, 10:06 PM
No you dont just slam the board on the floor after poping. Try to drag your board when it reaches an angle of 45 degrees so you can get a good hight and suck up your knees on to the board. Then you wont have to slam the board down and you'll also get good distance and hight.

I've always believed that a beginner should learn ollies stationary first, but try them moving after getting comfortable with the motion and riding the board.
And it took me about a week to get my ollies, but I could do a slight ollie on the second day.

sk8rforlifeson
11-26-2006, 07:07 AM
wait does ur board go vertical or do u go horzintal the board should go horizontal when coming down other wise if its vertical then you'll probably land into a manual, and u won't be expecting that and then u'll fall off, most likely.

11-26-2006, 09:07 AM
the board should go horizontal when coming down other wise if its vertical then you'll probably land into a manual, and u won't be expecting that and then u'll fall off, most likely.

Yeah... The problem with that is if your board turns horizontal, your gonna stop and go flying off the board.

When you ollie, you won't land in a manual because you move up the board.

As for your board turning, I don't know. I never had the problem.

supertom
12-01-2006, 12:40 PM

how come somtimes, i do my ollie, and then when i land it, for somereason my board will take off flying foward and i fall backwards?

its probably because your not completly balanced in the first place.are you sure your keeping your weight in the center of the board.

how come when i try to ollie over things, i can't ollie as high?

this depends on ur speed. if u r moving very fast, u shouldnt hav 2 press the tail as hard as usual. if u r moving sloly, slam that tail as hard as u can.also try not 2 raise ur body high. only raise ur legs.

get your timing down
pop then jump after the pop
after some practice and experimenting your tail should start going up and your ollies will be higher

I'm a beginner and I've only been skating for about three days now, but I finally accomplished my ollie. Of course I haven't yet took it completely out to the concrete but have done it and so far so good. I failed at first but finally understood the whole idea of making a ollie.

Set you feet up with your front foot in the middle of the board and your back foot on the middle of the tail.

push down on your tail, and start to jump upwards and slide the side of your foot (you have to roll your ankle like standing on the side of your foot) up towards the nose. As your dragging you front foot up the board, bring your back foot up as well to level out the board.

As you start to come down extend you legs but leave your knees slightly bent to absorb the impact.

you're not jumping up high enough. its because your front foot isn't high up enough.

whenever i ollie, (and i'm moving) i always end up with my front foot landing on the nose, but when i'm at a standstill i can ollie like 6-8 inches.
any advice?
i've been skating for like 1+ hours a day and i'm not getting any better. i can barely ollie over a crack but i have to be going really fast.

probably you are still shifting your weight to the tail so when you land you fall

I have to say, I have been skating a year(I still suck) and this just helped me a whole bunch with my ollies. Before, I just leveled out right way, and got about 5 inches, now I slid my foot up more, and got about a foot. Thanks Tom-E.

The picture of the feet positioning really helped me. Never did know how to angle my back foot. But how low is to low? In one of the videos I watched few weeks back the guy said the more you bend your knees the hire the ollie....but how low is to low? I bend my knees so much I can push my self with my hands....to low?

Crouching too low can waste the power you build up when you go down.. Go low but not to where your knees are touching your chest or anything extreme like that.
If your going to ollie things, dont crouch too far from it just defeats the purpose or it

Jay473
03-11-2007, 06:30 PM
Thanks, I was afraid I was going to low. I started doing that because that was the way I popped the first ollie and figured it was the right way as well. Guess it wasnt. I got to relearn them because somehow I forgot how to do them (lol) not much time to skate. Work to much.......

ZKATER
03-11-2007, 10:36 PM
People think you need to crouch very low when trying to get your ollies high. You dont need to go to the max crouching, just bend your knees.

At first, the ollie wont come easy. Trust me, ive been there, its frustrating.

If you dont give up, eventually you'll succeed.

Yeah, if your afraid of falling on a curb, Skatings not for you.

Also, your not going to need alot to ollie on a curb or off it, so dont get alot of speed or crouch down alot.

NO WAY I LOVE SKATEBOARDING IVE SPRAINED MY BOTH WRISTS AND IM STILL NOT GIVING UP ON IT

:)
i proggressed cause i got like 7 and rode away with them to (smiling at passing cars)

howd do you move the board forward???????

i got more speed but im only getting them into nose stalls but on the sidewalk halfway from clearing the curb
and most of my friends are wussies that quit skateboarding after like 2 months of it and i really have no one to show me
